Spanish women finish 2019 World Cup qualifiers undefeated

Logroño, Spain, Sep 4 (efe-epa).- Spain, already assured of a berth in the 2019 Women's World Cup, dominated Serbia 3-0 here Tuesday to finish the qualifiers with 12 wins and one draw.

With no chance of qualifying, the visitors had only their pride at stake, while the hosts were determined to remain unbeaten ahead of next year's tournament in France.

Some of the more than 7,700 spectators - a record for the Spanish women at home - were still finding their seats at Logroño's Las Gaunas stadium when Spain took a 1-0 lead in the second minute.

Jennifer Hermoso converted from the spot after the referee awarded a penalty for a foul against Vicky Losada.

The first half saw chances for both teams, but only the Spaniards were effective around goal and would have doubled their lead in the 14th minute if Maria Leon's strike hadn't hit the post.

The second goal for the hosts came 20 minutes later, courtesy of Amanda Sampedro.

Spain took complete charge of the contest in the second half and Hermoso got her second of the night at the hour mark to make the final score 3-0.
